Senator Lindsey Graham Censored by GOP
NY Times ^

Posted on 11/11/2009 2:52:36 PM PST by MaxCUA

Senator Lindsey Graham, the Republican with a maverick streak, has been censured by local Republican Party officials in his home state of South Carolina. The executive committee of the Charleston County Republican Party voted unanimously on Monday to rebuke Mr. Graham “for many of the positions he has taken that do not represent the wishes of the people of South Carolina, such as: passing a ‘cap and trade’ energy bill, bailing out banks and granting amnesty for illegal aliens.” Lin Bennett, the chairwoman of the local party, told the Charleston Post and Courier that party leaders were “fed up.”

Senator Lindsey Graham, the Republican with a maverick streak...

Don't need a decoder ring for this one:

Maverick = Liberal = Rino = Demonrat in a dress = Voters ripped off.

I have NO PROBELM with this:

...Republican Party voted unanimously on Monday to rebuke Mr. Graham “for many of the positions he has taken that do not represent the wishes of the people of South Carolina, such as: passing a ‘cap and trade’ energy bill, bailing out banks and granting amnesty for illegal aliens.”

Now, only if Steele eould stop being a RINO and do the same in the party at large.

Senator Lindsey Graham ... has been censured by local Republican Party officials in his home state of South Carolina.

It is about time the SC GOP started getting control of their party. They need to purge scoundrels like gramnesty, sinfraud, and Inglis, while elevating their true heroes like Wilson and DeMint.

Now, if only the national party would have the cojones to throw this fraud out!

I live in SC, I’m a registered Republican, and I can assure you that Lindsey Graham does NOT reflect MY views in any way, shape or form.

Put a recall provision on the ballot in 2010 and this megalomaniac piece of garbage is history.

He will NOT serve out his term.

The GOP controls the legislature in SC and can put a recall provision on the ballot in 2010.

He is gone.

Lindsey pulled the ultimate bait-and-switch, passing himself off as a conservative Republican long enough to get elected to the Senate twice. Now that he’s come out of the closet as a DIABLO, he’ll count on Democrat votes in South Carolina to keep him there. It’s too bad Sanford apparently self-destructed. It will take a Republican candidate of that visibility and stature to even have a slight chance of crowbarring Lindsey out of this seat.

Worthless. We had a chance to support the Ron Paul Democrat who opposed him in November but passed it up. He has five more years and people have short memories.
